When water gets on floor the grout absorbs it and turns dark until it dries. Will sealing this grout make it waterproof?

Answer: 
Yes if you use the right kind. some grout sealers don't allow any penetration of the surface. Others like Silicone grout sealer still allows some penetration. Read the label or go to a tile supply house and tell them you want a moisture proof sealer.

Answer: 
They are 2 different shades of brown, i wouldn't say one is lighter than the other. Your best bet is to look at a grout color card at your local Home Depot so you can see what color would best match what you are looking for. For further information, please contact our technical service department at 800 272-8786 option 2.

Polyblend #185 New Taupe 25 lb. Sanded Grout is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 679.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse thing ever - Ruined my floor This grout is NOT dark brown. I put in a 400 sq ft floor using Gunstock (wood look alike) tiles. The display in the store said "Shown with Tobacco Brown Grout" It was beautiful so that is what I bought. When the grout was wet it looked great, but when it dried it was at least 3 shades lighter and looks like gray chalk lines. Does not even look brown at all. My $3000 floor looks horrible!!! I am now going to have to attempt to re-stain the grout a darker color. This will require painting all the grout lines with a tooth brush. It will probably take me months to complete. If you are looking for Brown grout - STAY AWAY FROM THIS COLOR!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Fusion Don't be fooled by Fusion hype! This grout costs 1/8 as much as Fusion! Each bag goes over twice as far, costing 1/4 of the price!. It is much easier to work with. far less chance of staining cabinets, trim, or the tile itself. With proper cleaning, DOES NOT need sealing! For added protection, Boost Grout enhancer can be used, or it can be sealed 5-7 days later. Super easy job, can seal 100s of feet per hour. Much less work than scrubbing Fusion off, with even more harsh chemicals. It dries MUCH faster, will no chemical off gassing. That means those with lung issues won't be irritated by the chemicals evaporating. Furniture and appliances can be put back in @ 2 hours vs 24-48 with Fusion. The cement grout is MUCH BETTER for the environment, doesn't require an MSDS Safety sheet. Clean up is safe and easy. The choice is not difficult.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst grout I've ever used I have been doing tile work for 18 years and this has to be the worst product I've ever worked with. I used this brand of grout in 2 tub surrounds on a job last year. The fist shower I noticed right away that the material set up faster than I am used to and cleaned off my tools very easily. The next day the grout was dry and the color varied from joint to joint. Additionally there seam to be cracking right away. I followed the mixing instructions as stated on package and used distilled water in the mix. I knew right away I would be re-grouting the surround. I knew I needed to do something different with the second bath so I used sealer instead of water hoping to get a better product. The result was stronger grout but I still ended up with color variations. And a year later hair line cracks in the grout. You may be thinking that maybe this guy applied the product incorrectly. But I assure you that this is the first time I ever used polyblend band grout and this is also the first time I have ever had a costumer call me with concerns on a tile job. I will never use it again and will inform everyone I know to stay away from this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tile Choice on my part. The Delorean Tile Grout is beautiful and matches the tile and allows more light into the room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixes well and dries true to color This sanded grout is easy to mix and the color is just what I expected. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is that the bag is so big and heavy. I'm a mosaic artist, and I only need a half cup or so to grout a stepping-stone project. If I could buy a 10-pound bag, instead of 25 pounds, I'd be really happy. Note for those who work with mosaics: it's best to work in cool weather; overcast is ideal, but early morning works too. This grout dries at a slow enough pace that you can undo and redo small areas if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from During batch mixes, the color stayed constant. Which is very important since the entire bag was u... During batch mixes, the color stayed constant. Which is very important since the entire bag was used in one area. Sanded grout, if too dry, is not spread and pushed into cracks/seams very easily. So getting the consistency (mortar like) correct and using smaller batches was necessary for application. As the grout job continued, i found that mixing just about 1/2 gallon at a time was right for our application... especially on the wall tiles. I applied the mixture using a rubber trowel and a hawk board. The product met all of our expectations and we definitely would use this product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst grout ever Followed the directions even used purified water because I was told hard water will change the color in the grout. I am extremely upset because some of my floor looks like white grout and the other is brown with a purple haze. This is not my first time doing tile but the first time using Polyblend. I won't use it again. I called the company and they said I need to purchase another product to clean the grout and then apply yet another one of their products to have it the color I was supposed to get when I purchased the grout.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible!!!! I am totally disappointed with the end result! The grout color my husband and I picked was oyster gray and what we got when the grout dried was white!!!! It's crazy. I called custom building care center and was told that this was efflorescences which is impossible since this occurs over time not over a few hours, then I was told to tint it. I have researched and it seems its a very common problem.Why put the color on the bag if it's going to dry way lighter then expect! Very poor product!!!! >:(
